Description Technical Specs Extended Information
Advanced Skills Tee: THE ONLY REAL TRAINING TEE! Almost all other tees are only ball holders, nothing else. They might be durable but offer no other function. We feel the AST is the best tee on the market. Extremely durable and teach the right mechanics. Tees that hold the ball can be good for older players that have their swing path established but are not right for younger and developing players. The AST will allow for a 10 degree upward path, but no more. Statistics show that the optimum upward angle is between 4 - 8 percent. If the bat trajectory angle is higher, the bat will exit the zone too quick and reduce the percentage of contact.
Advanced Skills Tee Assembly
Muhl Tech- Advanced Skills Tee- Purpose and Benefits

Why the Forward Arm?

In fact, the question should be "Why not a forward arm?". You don't hit the ball over the center of the plate (as traditional batting tees suggest). You make contact in front of the plate. But there are two other equally important reasons to use a forward arm design:

1. The forward arm eliminates "dipping" or dropping the hands and trailing shoulder to lift the ball with a "looping" type swing. If you "dip" with the AST, you hit the back of the arm. It forces you to take the bat straight down to the ball, leveling the swing at the point of contact.
2. The forward arm also pivots and rotates to place the ball on the inside or outside of the strike zone. Then, the arm points in the direction to drive the ball based on pitch location (i.e. pull the inside pitch, go with the outside pitch to the opposite field . . . "Hit the ball where it's pitched").

What is the Purpose of the Outside Barrier?

The outside barrier eliminates "casting". It keeps you form swinging "long" and helps you "keep the hands inside the ball". If the bat or arms are extended prematurely the bat head will slap the flexible upright barrier post. For years coaches have set a tee adjacent to a fence or screen to force hitters to compact their swing. The outside barrier does the same thing except it is a lot more effective. It rotates around the tee to accommodate LH or RH hitters and it moves along with the forward arm to help you keep the hands "tight" when you are working on inside and outside pitch locations. With the outside barrier you are forced to rotate the hips and torso and extend the hands only at the point of contact. It produces a "quick" bat and more power as well.
Get a Clean "Swish" through the Ball!
Our unique brush cup ball holder presents the ball like it is being picked clean, right out of the air. Better yet, it will last many times longer than traditional ball holders.

What Makes the Advanced Skills Teeā„¢ So Durable?

The tubing for the AST is molded from polyurethane. Polyurethane is a flexible material like rubber; however, polyurethane is much stronger and more durable than rubber (as much as 10 times more durable!). Wheels for roller blades, industrial rollers, and dimpled pitching machine balls are among the many items typically made with urethane. It's a great material for products that must withstand impact and stress yet remain flexible. Urethanes are expensive, and whilte the AST may cost more than a traditional rubber tee, it is guaranteed to last 10 times longer too. We back our Advanced Skills Tees with a two-year warranty.

Practical and Portable

The AST can be assembled or disassembled, by hand, for easy storage and transportation. And, it uses a hollow, canteen style base that is filled with sand or water (and sealed with a rubber plug). When filled, the base provides weight for stability and when empty, the base is light and portable.

5 of 5 Best for dipping August 3, 2021
Reviewer: Michael B. from Los Angeles  
I love this tee. My kid had a terrible habit of dipping the back shoulder, after a month, the bad habit went away. This tee tells my son to not dip. Incredible.

5 of 5 Advanced Skills Tee July 14, 2021
Reviewer: Ted D. from Germantown, TN  
Keeps the hands in and keeps the swing level. Both huge aspects to teaching a young players swing, and the tee teaches them for me. Great tee.
